Beard Papa's

I woke up today craving one of these giant cream puffs from the Japanese bakery, Beard Papa's.

I had one Sunday night while catching up with a friend and they were so, so good.  I'm no puff expert, and in fact I expected them to be too sweet, but I never turn down a dessert (strict policy).  I was pleasantly surprised by the flaky pastry, and rich, but not too sweet cream filling.  Beware: there's no glamorous way to consume a giant cream puff with delicious filling oozing out of it.  

You can order them by the dozen, and we both agreed they would make an unexpected substitute for cupcakes at a party.  Just pop a little paper flag on top and call it good.
